New running group set up for beginners in Hastings
10 August 2011
As featured in the Hastings Observer.
A running group for absolute beginners has been set up for budding runners in Hastings.
Falaise Fitness Centre, based in Cambridge Road, Hastings, set up the new group for those who have recently taken up the sport as well.
The new group is designed to encourage people to start running and offers support and guidance in those early weeks as their fitness and confidence develop. It meets twice a week on Fridays at 11am and Sundays at 4pm and is taken by Group Leader Sam Hart.
Nicole White, manager of Falaise Fitness Centre, said: “Locals will know that the town has a good choice of running clubs for more experienced or competitive runners.
“We are delighted to have the backing of Run England to launch this group and they have given valuable advice and training for us to share with our members.”
The group runs for about an hour at each session and new runners are encouraged to go at their own pace and build up their speed and distance gradually. The runs take in a variety of routes, occasionally including some beach running.
To book in for a session, call 01424 457692 or turn up 10 minutes before the run is due to start at Falaise Fitness Centre. Cost is £2 per session.
